Hotel deLuxe Portland Offers a Polished Vibe in a Casually-Cool City

Whenever I visit Portland, I am immediately struck by the city’s laid-back, informal vibe. Even the restaurants that serve haute cuisine that — in any other city, would demand a dress code — have casual diners. Given that prior experience, stepping into Hotel deLuxe came as an unexpectedly upscale surprise.

Hotel deLuxe is located on a seemingly innocuous corner of 15th Street in downtown Portland. A small awning marks the entryway and a set of steps leads to the hotel's foyer and check-in desk, off to the left is Gracie's, one of the breakfast-loving city's most beloved spots along with the Driftwood Room cocktail lounge. What is remarkable about the space is that you are at once transported back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood, thanks to the hotel's motif: stars of the silver screen.
